apt-transport-tor
Easily install Debian packages via Tor.

Usage
Edit your /etc/apt/sources.list like so, adjusting the suite/components appropriately for your system:

deb tor+http://http.debian.net/debian unstable main
deb-src tor+http://http.debian.net/debian unstable main

Note the use of http.debian.net so that a mirror close to your exit node will be automatically chosen.

Alternatively, if you have the Tor hidden service address of a Debian mirror, you can use that:

deb tor+http://<long string>.onion/debian unstable main
deb-src tor+http://<long string>.onion/debian unstable main


Note
APT is Debiandog way of managing packages

Useful commands :
netstat -tulpn
netstat -antp
netstat -tanp | grep tor

PostPosted: Thu 06 Sep 2018, 17:53    Post subject: Tor Browser 8.0 with improved bridge fetching
Subject description: first stable release based on Firefox 60 ESR
 

For users where Tor is blocked, we have previously offered a handful of bridges in the browser to bypass censorship. But to receive additional bridges, you had to send an email or visit a website, which posed a set of problems. To simplify how you request bridges, we now have a new bridge configuration flow when you when you launch Tor. Now all you have to do is solve a captcha in Tor Launcher, and you’ll get a bridge IP. We hope this simplification will allow more people to bypass censorship and browse the internet freely and privately.

XMRWallet.com has finally bowed to pressure and decided to launch a web-based wallet for Tor users, making them the very first providers of the service.

That's a cool idea, especially if the ip addresses assigned by the captcha are random.

PostPosted: Mon 24 Sep 2018, 18:01    Post subject: Tor Browser for Android  

https://blog.torproject.org/new-alpha-release-tor-browser-android

Mobile browsing is on the rise around the world, and in some parts, it is commonly the only way people access the internet. In these same areas, there is often heavy surveillance and censorship online, so in the past year, we’ve focused on better supporting these users.

There’s never been an official Tor Browser on mobile. Until now.


Introducing Tor Browser for Android (alpha), the mobile browser with the highest privacy protections ever available and on par with Tor Browser for desktop. You can download the alpha release on GooglePlay, or you can get the apk directly from our download page. The stable release is slated for early 2019.

Note: For this release, you also need to install Orbot, a proxy application that will connect Tor Browser for Android with the Tor network. For the upcoming Tor Browser for Android stable release, our goal is for Orbot not to be necessary to connect to Tor.


To get your copy of Tor browser for Android : https://www.torproject.org/dist/torbrowser/mobile/1.0a1/tor-browser-android-arm-1.0a1.apk

I'm now using this browser as my main browser for ZeroNet on android. I run ZeroNet in Termux. The reason being is that the ZeroNet android ap can't read the authentication cookie from the Tor ap (i.e. orbit) unless one has root permissions. If one instead installs ZeroNet and Tor in Termux both ZeroNet and Tor are the same user and this alows ZeroNet to read the Tor authentication cookie.

Instructions for installing ZeroNet on Termux can be found at:

Zerogate allows people to brows zeronet sites from clearnet.

https://www.pcsuggest.com/openwrt-tor-proxy-setup/

Straight to the point, this tutorial is about how to setup Tor on a OpenWrt router, anonymizing all devices connected through wifi, a Tor SOCKS v5 proxy server accessible from both wifi and Ethernet LAN connection.
